The data exchange of Export Packing Lists is a data exchange to support sellers providing transport services providers with shipment delivery information. The data requirements to support this data exchange is well covered within the UN/CEFACT Core Component Library and the Supply Chain Reference Data Model. However, many trading partners still have a document-centric approach to data exchange such as the HANMOV UN/EDIFACT UNSM which was developed to cover these requirements.
